Widgets are the constituent parts of dashboards.
The three main types of widget are:
- Feed widgets, which are powered by searches and present a feed of posts from the different platforms we track
- Leaderboard widgets, which amalgamate data from across many posts and present that data on an aggregate level
- Timeline widgets, which show how the media and public have engaged with a given topic over a specified time period
There are also widgets that do not fall into any of these categories, which you can find in our Other widgets section.
Each widget shows up in a minimized view by default, as below.
